If a hauler wishes to be listed they must show evidence that they provide recycling services. Such evidence may include a municipal recycling tonnage collection report for the past calendar year or a copy of a current recycling contract with a Media business.
Media Borough thanks each of the businesses that have established recycling programs and are complying with the law, helping our community save money, reusing resources, and reducing landfill waste.
Tip: Businesses may partner with other businesses to negotiate their recycling / trash contract. The more you have on board, the more leverage you have for lower prices
